It plays a central role in our social lives, connecting us to friends, family, history, and culture. It ties in to our emotions, nurturing as it nourishes, comforting us with memories we have attached to certain tastes. We might view food as an expression of love -- a gift we give to those we cherish. Or we might see it as our enemy, a source of extra pounds that piles on with stress and fear.
